North Korea Releases its Third iPad Clone

Pyongyang claims they built it themselves, but a quick analysis would suggest otherwise...

North Korea state television revealed a new Tablet computer Monday, named "Arirang", after a famous Korean folk song.  But while North Korean TV broadcasters claim the device to be developed and produced by its Pyongyang Information Technology Bureau, a close look at the Chinese market reveals striking similarities between the new DPRK made device and a generic Chinese iPad clone.
